Do I Qualify For Bariatric Surgery?

Because weight loss surgery is still “considered” cosmetic surgery, it can be excluded from insurance plans that are self-funded by the employer. Tell an insulin-dependent diabetic that now takes no diabetic medication after bariatric surgery that it is cosmetic surgery and see your response! I tell patients in my seminar that we do not do surgery so you look better and feel better. We do weight loss surgery so you live longer and live better. In keeping with the ASMBS position statement for low BMI patients, we believe the 1991 NIH criteria that insurance companies use to determine who qualifies for weight loss surgery is out-dated. We also agree that obesity is a chronic disease and that earlier intervention is associated with greater long term success. Therefore, we will provide the appropriate self-funding candidate a surgical option for BMI >30 with co-morbidities, especially with a strong family history of diabetes or metabolic syndrome. All of our insurance candidates must have a BMI of 35.

I had surgery with Dr. Westmoreland and my whole experience from start to finish was FANTASTIC!!! I did not meet one person on his team that I did not love! His assistant Susan was very patient with me as I called often and bugged her with many questions! Lol She was always helpful and pleasant! I also enjoyed my one hour consult with Whitney and can't wait to continue working with her in the future!
